Read in March, 2008

I liked reading this book. The introduction written by her children explains why: "We hope that you will see [her letters] as a celebration of the power of the ordinary. We hope that as you peek into the Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday-ness of her life, you will see with new eyes the value of your own." Here is this family we revere for their righteousness and upstanding lives, and this collection of letters shows us that they lived lives similar to ours, except with all the extra traveling and responsibilities. But Sister Hinckley was plagued by similar concerns--sick children, the need to do yard work, and the inability to find cute clothes when shopping. Having read Gordon B. Hinckley's biography, it was interesting to get Sister Hinckley's perspective on their lives. And I think I liked it because I know several of the Hinckley's children and grandchildren.
